    Kouros, absolutely... Fahrenheit is just "very different". Kouros, on the other hand, has the sex appeal of a greek god.

    Kouros has been growing on me each time I test it, but I haven't warmed up to it enough to make a purchase. Fahrenheit also took me a lot of testing before I decided to buy, but has since become a top favorite. So I voted for Fahrenheit, but who knows how I might vote in a couple of months.

    Is it just me? I tried Fahrenheit at the mall a couple of weeks ago but I distinctly remembered when I bought it back when it first debuted, it was much stronger smelling than it is today. I was in the 7th grade when I bought it.

    I am ging to call Kouros the winner. I thank everyone that participated and appreciate all comments! I will be going out of town for the weekend and will be checking the stores to see if I find a decent bottle of Kouros. If not, I will have to wait until I go to sephora or ourder from the boutique. Who knows, I will probably pick up farenheit someday but for now, I can foresee kouros and Jazz always being in my drobe!

    Fahrenheit

    Although I'm a Fahrenheit addict I just don't get Kouros. Could someone please explain it to me???

    I really wanted to like it and its not that I hate it, I just find that it smells like many cheap deodorant sprays I can pick up at the local supermarket. I've tried it on my skin twice now and thats what I get from it. It does have good longevity though which is always good but the scent just smells very cheap IMO

    If you can bear it to smell like an eucalyptus tree, then Kouros.

    If you are more a fan of smelling like a cucumber then its Fahrenheit.

    Both are very special scents and not even close to compare them.

    fahrenheit if you want a cologne that will get more compliments and leave a better impression of the two

    kouros if you a collector and want a complex intricate challenging fragrance and could care less if other people think you smell like shit

    I like both of 'em! Kouros if you want a more natural smell, Fahrenheit if you want a more alluring one.

    They're way too different and unique to compare, get both even if you're only a mild fragrance lover.

    I find Fahrenheit to be more special and therefore my choice.

    Kouros reminds one of a barbershop smell, which, while pleasant and manly, isn't very special or out of the ordinary, in that respect I think it's a safer choice.

    I like both, but Fahrenheit is a safe fragrance and Kouros is more complex and a powerhouse in longevity and sillage.
